the snow day that never was

Last week (or the week before, time is running into one, apparently) I was off work, and had intended to go for an early morning run - however I opened my curtains and it was snowing. I hung about for a bit, but then the snow wasn't stopping, so decided to drag my mum out for a walk with my camera, instead. By the time we got to the lake, the snow had stopped and all but melted.
We walked around Virginia Water, up to the hill and the heather garden, then back around to the ruins of Leptis Magna, one of my favourite local ruins, haha. It was cold and brisk, and we made friends with a few puppies and some swans that tried to bite me, before having a cheeky hot dog and burger in the new cafe overlooking the water. It was really nice, but I miss how nice this place is in the spring and summer, I need some life in the trees and a bit more greenery about...


  1. Beautiful photos, I especially like the waterfall one.

    We've had lots of snow showers like that - it comes down heavily and I get all excited thinking we might get a snow day but half an hour later it's melted. I think we're done with all the snow we're going to get now too :(

  2. Ooh this place looks really nice! Too bad the snow didn't stick.

  3. So many beautiful photos here - sad that the snow didn't stick around, but the news says we're in for some more..

  4. beautiful pictures, that first one is just stunning!

  5. Snow or no snow these pictures are beautiful. There's really nothing better than a walk in the countryside. I wish I could do it more often myself!
